The No. 12 seeded Gauchos defeated 13 seed Pacific in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament in Tempe, Ariz., 14-10. Santa Barbara improves to 16-20 overall while the Tigers drop to 5-25.
Senior defender Amiee Stachowski had a game-high four goals for the Gauchos, including two in the final stanza. The Tigers did not go down easily, with Kellie Fletcher netting a hat trick in the first period. It was not enough with UCSB scoring five goals of its own and the Gauchos continued to either match or outdo UOP's goals for the remainder of the game.
Rosey Redaelli stopped eight shots in the victory while Jocelyn Gray blocked 12. Gray was whistled for an ejection during the second quarter with Harris making a save during the power play attempt by UCSB.
Santa Barbara will play the eight seed Arizona State tomorrow at 9 a.m.
